When I was much less experienced, and didn't keep track of the arrow myself, I did a low-level game at which the arrow was kept on the scoreboard.

Well, the kid running the clock thought that the arrow was intended to keep track of which team currently controlled the ball. So every time there was a turnover or steal, the kid changed the arrow. I must have given the ball to the same team 4 AP's in a row without realizing it. (I wasn't keeping track, remember.)

It's funny now, but not so much at the time.
